Leaping love lives long
Serenity soulmates sing
Wishing for walking wisdom

Twinkles through forever time

Polkadot Polka

Tumbling, whirling, smiling, swirling –
 A riot of laughter – orderly rows well crafted.

Swaying, dancing, toe tapping, prancing –
 Rainbows of color –freckles in technicolor.

Jumping, leaping, playing not creeping –
 Like leap frog, per chance – a spinning top...Read More

Poet Profound

The cascading stream leaping in swirling ebullience
Through dancing shadows of swaying trees entranced
The spectral dew drops draping the glinting grass tips
Weave lattice of splendor on the meadow bejeweled
The drizzling dust on moonbeam in blue satin night
Adorns the pearl laced waves...Read More

Curious Devotion Within
Things can be intimidating within life as we grow together treading through time 
Nullifying life’s hardships 
Prospering life’s greatness 
Alluring as my mindset finds

Everything is simple 
yet so complex 
We need to stop at times

Premium Member Plague Year 2020
Some will pass away
Some see the skull beneath
The skin,
Others will feel,
Living or dying,
A certain stillness
In the air,
A certain absence of movement,
Except perhaps,
When looking out of a window,
Leaves swaying gently 
In the breeze 
Or a blaze of colour
From early spring flowers,
But...Read More

Autumn Leaves
Bare hands swaying in the breeze 
Grainy sand of weeds 
Dusting off 
The heaviness 
Weighing down 
Broken ends
At the end of the rope
Pulling away 
From dark places 
Releasing the burden 
To the light in the window
And the...Read More

Goldfish in Bowl
Confined in a  bowl of silver bubbles 
human eyes to view, hurled and thrown 
round and round, aimless drift in orbits 
a prison of luminous water to swim alone

Can I jump.out of my gulping waters

Premium Member Shantelle's Hideaway
From the stony fields with lavender rising
White butterflies alight atop each bouquet
While speckled ladybugs frolic to aroma's flower
Shantelle's hideaway spreads before the gaze

Within her name blooms a friendly stillness
Envisaged within the heathered rocks strewn
To peruse upon such stunning tranquility
And conjure...Read More

In Anticipation
There is a tree at the end of the lane
bare, standing proud in the the rain
graceful yet eerie against a fading light
gently swaying on a moonlit night
quietly waking from a long winter sleep
new shoots of green are beginning to creep

The crossing .
Along the shore of tomorrow and close to the inland sea
By the mountains of forgiveness and the lake of eternity.

With a river for the lost souls that travels through out the land
Over seeing all those passed

Premium Member Late one night
Was there more to her 
  than met the eye
She kept to herself
  We all wondered why

Her smile fairly sparkled
  So did her hair
Yet none of us knew
  what went on in there

She answered most questions

Premium Member Desperate wishes cast

where, in the shadow of a winter moon
beyond eternal skylines collecting stars,
does affection unfold in the sheets
of a nighttime whispering on the breeze

desperate wishes cast as stones on a pond,
smooth surfaces now laced with ripples,
spherical patterns meandering towards
a slumbering shoreline,...Read More

Like  lightning in a stormy night 
Her Heart forgot its rhythmic schemes
